CS Ed Week: Plans at North Gwinnett

November 28, 2011 at 7:41 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Thanksgiving was a pleasant break from a very stressful three months of work and we were all ready to get away and take some time off.  Now as I get ready for next week, I realize how close CS Ed Week is.

At our school we are conducting a technology competition. I am very excited! In order to encourage participation students will be designing projects as a class activity.  The categories are: Multimedia, Game Design, Web Design and Graphic Design. Next week students will demonstrate all the projects and I am going to ask them to do a peer review.  This will decide which ones are going advance to the school level.

Our Technology Showcase and Awards Banquet is set for December 9th. I am sending out personal invitations to parents this week.  I am certainly going to include some fun data about importance of computer science education in high school as well as the jobs scenario.

Finally, we have our December GATE speaker finalized. I am working on the details, but if all goes well the speaker will talk to all computer science classes on Friday, Dec. 9th and during students’ lunches.

CS Ed Week should be fun.
